    Hey Facepunch,

    I know there is a certain bias against laptops, even a gaming laptop, but they aren't given enough credit. There have been threads dedicated to posting your desktop, but I want to see what laptops you guys are rocking out there. The fact is laptops are holding there own in gaming lately, and not just alienware. Asus, MSI, Acer, and Gateway are producing some great products. And there are many others which may not be suitable for gaming, but are definitely performance laptops.

    Here is mine, an HP Dv6000. It isn't very good, but I do some light gaming, mostly source games. It is about a year and half old now.





    Excuse the shitty quality, my camera isn't too good, and lighting was horrible.

    I have an Acer Aspire 5520g (lol acer)

    But I'm looking to get a t91 or a t101, I'll leave it until windows 7 comes out though so it'll come pre-installed and be a bit cheaper.

    Dell Latitude X300 (not my image).

    It can run GTA 3, and that's pushing it a bit.

    I don't feel like taking a new picture.



    Dell Vostro 1000. It's big, heavy, and only cost me $400 (I don't travel a lot so portability isn't terribly important to me)

    Specs:
    1.9 GHz AMD TK-57 CPU
    1GB RAM
    Integrated Xpress 1150 graphics
    80GB HDD

    Aero works surprisingly well on the integrated graphics.

    My 600Mhz Compaq Armada E500 and 500Mhz IBM ThinkPad 600X. I use the former for IMs and Internet while gaming, and I bought a WLAN adapter for it so I can carry it around the house and take it with me to hotels etc. that have wireless internet. The latter is just sitting there for now, I need to reinstall windows once I locate my discs and then figure out a use for it.



    And this is my Compaq nc4000, Right now it doesn't do anything because the current install of Windows is corrupted and this fucker doesn't have a CD drive.
